Glossary of Terms
Fan Air Resistance Bikes = Exercise Fan bikes use a fan as resistance. The faster you pedal, the more resistance is generated as the fan blades spin faster. There are no pads to replace, no flywheel. The advantage of a Fan Bike is that they are very simple bikes with no pre-programmed workouts. The air from the fan will in most cases blow back on you to cool you off as you pedal.
Maximum User Weight = Each upright exercise bike, depending on its construction has a maximum user weight limit. More expensive bikes generally can handle more weight. So if the limit is 300 lbs, and you are over 300 lbs., you should not buy this exercise bike, but look for one with a higher weight limit. If you weigh substantially less than the weight limit, this will put less strain on the machine and parts. So its best to get the bike that has a higher user weight rating.
Bike Weight = As with the flywheel, the heavier the weight of the bike, the more stable it will be. This is especially true if you weigh a lot more than the machine you are on.
4 Way Adjustable Seat = All Air bike seats can move up and down vertically, but only the better ones can also go forward and backward (Fore/Aft). A 4-way adjustable seat can move in all directions. The 2-way adjustable seat can only move vertically up/down.
Heart Telemetry = This type of Air Bike is heart rate sensor ready, so it is compatible with optional Polar chest straps. The heart rate will show on your LCD console.
Workout Programs = Almost all exercise bikes have a small computer and display where you can run multiple workout programs that vary the resistance. However most indoor cycle type bikes do not have workout programs, nor do air fan bikes.
LED/LCD Display = The exercise bike will have a display to give you information (such as time, calorie burn, distance). They can be either LED lit, or use an LCD screen. Many bikes have LCD screens that are not backlit, as many run on batteries. If its says “BACKLIT LCD”, then it has a backlight illuminating the screen, which is best for visability. LED displays are also illuminated screens.
